As Christians we live for God’s glory and according to his will but that does not mean that we just sit back and let life happen. We should be proactive and intentional how we live each day. I am a collector of quotes and I ran across this a few years back by former Disney […]

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part II

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part I
